  • Electronic storage of contract documents
  • Summary and detailed reports

Prism Components

PRISM Online

You may use PRISM Online to start applications, enter billings, submit reports, and review information on active and completed projects. First time PRISM users may request a new PRISM account or watch training videos for tips on how to start an application, submit a report, or find other helpful information.

PRISM Project Workbench

You are not required to use the PRISM Project Workbench to complete grant requirements, but may chose to for the reporting features it offers. RCO staff use PRISM 2007 for numerous grant management activities.

Project Search

Project Search provides the public with the ability to see details on all grants submitted and funded by RCO. The information is real-time data and may be displayed in charts, lists, and maps.

User Accounts

To apply for grants or edit data in PRISM, create a PRISM user account. Please read our privacy policy.

To just view PRISM data, use PRISM Project Search. This Web-based tool allows you to search for any project in the PRISM database by using the search criteria or the interactive map and then to view Project Snapshot.

Project Snapshot provides general information about RCO projects including funding, descriptions, location, metrics, milestones, attachments, and photographs.

You also may use PRISM 2007 to view project data. To do this, download and install PRISM 2007 on your computer and then check the “Read-Only” box on the LOGIN screen.
